Grade 7 Lesson: Building Pyramids

In the film Dream Big, we see that engineers build their ideas and techniques on the previous work of others. Engineers are fascinated by the past and by the ways humans have been solving problems similar to ours for millennia. Just as engineers study the Roman construction of the aqueducts and the Chinese construction of the Great Wall of China, engineers are still investigating how the ancient Egyptians were capable of moving stones large enough to build the pyramids.
